ABILENE, Texas -

The attorney for an Abilene man charged with stabbing a woman last year went before a judge seeking a sanity hearing for his client.

Robert Latham, 33, is charged with stabbing a 19-year-old woman in October of 2012.  The stabbing occurred at an apartment complex on Matador Street.

Latham's attorney Jeff Johnson requested that a mental examination be done on Latham – and Judge Lee Hamilton granted that request.

The results of the examination won't be known for several weeks.
